But most things that are really worthwhile require diligent, consistent effort and more than one attempt to get right. Learning to read. Riding a bike. Watching my sons learn new things reminds me of this often. Good thing they didn't give up when they first tried to walk and it didn't work out. Although, I'd have been fine if the second had waited longer than 10 months to get started! I digress.
The thing is, I've fallen and I need to get up and walk again. My weight is up, I'm tired all the time, and I'm eating pretty poorly. It's time to clean up my act. I've got a plan percolating in my head, and the first step is to improve my sleep. I believe being better rested will help me think more clearly and make better choices. That has been true in the past.
So, tomorrow I quit caffeinated coffee and tea. I know the Lord will give me strength. I'm going to need it!
